Jesus Cured People; Then He Prayed Alone


Mark 1:29-39


After Jesus had left the synagogue,

He went into Simon and Andrew’s home.

Because Simon’s mother-in-law had a

Fever, Jesus cured her.  Then she served them.


Jesus Christ worked miracles quite often.

He cured human suffering with power.

He told the disciples to be quiet.

Jesus wanted to be known by His cross.


The next day, Jesus got up early to pray.

In prayer He learned to serve many others.

Instead of staying in that area,

Jesus preached in many, many places.


My mission is to write essays and poems

And then record them for WSFI.
